This was wonderful. Daniel was our main guide and he did a lovely job of separating my mom (very experienced horsewoman) and myself (managed not to fall off) away from those who are less experienced for frequent trots, canters and gallops. The horses are great, the guides are great and the scenery - undeveloped coastline, crashing waves, blue, blue, blue... More

Best Horsebacking Riding Experience! What a memorable and fun experience! We were picked up at our hotel on time by their friendly and informative employee, Chanette. We were lucky enough to also have her as our riding tour guide. I was very impressed with her teaching ability, especially for beginner riders. She cares about the rider's concerns, and picks just...

Had a fantastic time on this trip. We got to do some trail riding, ride on the beach and some galloping. We had 2 fantastic guides that would occasional divide the group into 2 - one group that wanted to gallop and another that just wanted to walk. Had a number of experienced riders in our group and they said... More

It was so much fun, I went twice! Well cared for Paso Fino horses that were suited for a variety of experience levels. I was impressed how well the first timers did on these horses. We all received great attention and I felt that there was ample opportunity to trot, canter and gallop. Danny was great to take me away... More

The Gold Mine Ranch's horseback ride is a fun adventure along the coast and ithe desert- like outback at and adjacent to the Arikok National Park. Our rides as beginners were made so much more special by the earnest and professional ranch staff members, Jeanette and Danny, each step of the way. We also couldn't stop smiling at this ranch's...

If you enjoy horseback riding and want to see the most gorgeous scenery in Aruba you have to take a tour. The pictures that are posted are real, it's that amazing! We had 8 riders and 2 guides in our group. The guides were very attentive and there were several spots where if you wanted to gallup you could. The... More

There were 4 of us who have never ridden horses before. The staff matched us up with the perfect horses and were extremely patient and helpful making it the best experience ever! I am so glad we went and marked that off our bucket list. I will definitely go back and do it again with The Gold Mine Ranch!

I horseback ride at every destination that I go to, and this was by far one of the better rides! You get two hours of horseback riding for the same charge that most places charge for only one hour! You will get to do a decent amount of cantering and galloping on this ride as well, so you may want... More

Candy and Jeanette were our guides and they were just fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed our ride and saw some spectacular scenery and views. The horses were very well behaved and are quite obviously well cared for! I would definitely recommend this company for riders of all skill levels from no experience to advanced. Thank you John, Jeanette,and Candy! Kathy and... More
